Mixed Weather Expected (July 8-10)
We’ll likely remain unsettled through Saturday with Sunday looking like the best day of the weekend. Let’s break it down:
Friday (July 8) high temperatures should level off around 90 away from the ocean and up in the NNJ elevations. The coast should be held to the mid-80s. Skies should feature sun and clouds with elevated humidity. Thunderstorms are possible between early evening and overnight hours. Winds should be generally light out of the SW (unless of course a storm is over you). Overnight lows should struggle to fall below 70 statewide with the exception of NNJ elevations. A classic humid summer night.
Saturday (July 9) high temperatures should reach well into the 80s statewide. Interior SNJ/CNJ could flirt with 90. Skies should remain humid and mixed with sun and clouds. Isolated-to-scattered thunderstorms are possible in hit-or-miss fashion. Not an all day washout. Winds should be light out of the W. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most. Parts of CNJ/SNJ could bottom out only around 70.
Sunday (July 10) high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 80s for most. It might just break 80 for NNJ elevations. Skies should be partly-to-mostly sunny, not as warm and have a slightly drier feel. Winds should be breezy out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most and possibly even the upper-50s for NNJ elevations.
An early look at next week indicates another nice day on Monday with heat and humidity returning by mid-week. Have a great weekend and be safe! JC
